SAMHSA Hosts HBCU Conference in Baltimore

The Dr. Lonnie Mitchell National HBCU Substance Abuse Conference logoThe 7th Annual Lonnie E. Mitchell National Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Substance Abuse Conference, sponsored by SAMHSA, convened in Baltimore, MD, April 19 to 23. Attendees included more than 600 HBCU faculty and students, members of the faith-based community, SAMHSA, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, other Federal agencies, and private sector agencies and organizations.

The annual conference's goal is to serve as a critical regional and national forum for HBCUs. Designed to inform, educate, and stimulate students, researchers, and faculty, the conference focuses on issues related to substance abuse. This year's theme, "Navigating New Pathways in Addressing Substance Abuse and Mental Health Challenges," highlighted the exchange of ideas on what works and what doesn't work in dealing with substance abuse in communities around the Nation.

The conference provided an opportunity for participants to focus on the many ways that substance use is affecting young people, adults, and older adults in our communities. In addition, the conference gave individuals time to interact with others who are working to effect a positive change in their local areas. End of Article
